Nasty & Stupid

Viciousness [Mona Charen]
I did one of my bi-annual visits to C-SPAN Friday morning. The callers were, as usual, a mix. But the emails that greeted me when I got back to my computer were just foul. Iâ€™ve been doing these shows (and others) for almost 15 years and have come in for my share of abuse. But the tone of these letters has taken a definite turn toward nasty and stupid.
There is some of this on the conservative side as well. I hear from liberals that they get disgusting letters too. But one wonders, after a huge Democratic victory last month, is there no sense of magnanimity in victory? No generosity of spirit?
Who am I kidding? The notion of good manners has been trampled almost to death. All we have in its place is sniveling political correctness. What a vulgar age we live in!
This would be the same Mona Charen who wrote:
…during the years when the Republicans were in control of the entire government.
Blow it out your ass, Mona.
